Abstract

The Palaeic relief has been regarded as either one or several surfaces, originating from differential weathering and pedimentation in warm climates or developed by fluvial cycles in response to changed base levels. Four major levels have recently been identified from a summit envelope surface. High-resolution elevation data from the Kjølen Mountains area, characterised by limited glacial erosion, were analysed to describe the relief. The AA. evaluate the fluvial and etch components of the landscape with special emphasis on fluvial incision related to uplift. They also made calculations of glacial erosion in relation to the fluvial landscape
